I have been looking at color swatches
so when we get to the actual painting part of the flood repairs
I would be ready.
While I was plundering around
I kept falling in love with this color called " indigo cloth".
I kid you not, looking at reds
and a suggested color combo would have that color to coordinate with it.
I was looking at colors for my bathroom and there it was!
Looking at a gray, and there was indigo cloth again.
I made a list.
I was not looking for a bold color!
I needed a color for the entire house, plus the flooded areas.
Yes, an old school way of trying to make up my mind.
I am sure there are easier ways to do this.
But I find comfort in feeling my pen on a scrap of paper
physically scratching the things off that list.
Of course, that color was in the mix........
So while I was out mailing a painting
I added stopping by the home improvement store to my list
What should my wandering eyes see while there?
A paint chip set for Spring 2014.
This little painting.......
A family recently adopted and ended up with unexpected expenses.
They had a virtual yard sale.
I decided, I might not live close by,
but I do have something I could share.
So I posted a painting and offered to mail it to whoever purchased it.
The lady that purchased my painting has a love for trees so it will have a happy home.
This gives me Hope,
something that gives me joy and fulfillment can be used to make a difference!
Really listening to my inner self and trying to take some forward steps.
I've been posting little paintings on my FB page.
I get such a thrill at how much my little birds bring joy to others.
My friends have shared stories of hummingbirds and cardinals.
They felt Gods presence when one would light on a branch close by.
specific flowers or a butterfly would hold meaning in their life
because it was a favorite of their mother or friend.
Or an experience they had would connect with a visual -
This is Hope.
So, my friends,
What inspiration have you found lately?
Have you been keeping your eyes open?
I hope so!
There is always room for Hope.
